I am very sorry to hear about your grandfather. As you said, he’s lived a full, long life. I hope the rest of his time will be peaceful and calm.
I do think you need to think about your financial plan before you think about having children. Kids come with predictable expenses (diapers, bottles, pump, etc) and unpredictable expenses (even more diapers, any unpaid time away from work, extra coffee to get yourself through the day). Do you guys intend to split these, 50/50? I don’t think there’s anything wrong with keeping separate finances, even though in my relationship we do not. But you do want to make sure you’re not going to be left in the situation
